Second rapid testing centre to take place in Wheathampstead
A second rapid test centre will be set up in The Memorial Hall car park on Saturday 27 February 2021 for those who have pre booked (no walk-ins will be accepted).
Free rapid testing for anyone without coronavirus symptoms is available across Hertfordshire and all key and essential workers who cannot work from home during the current government restrictions are encouraged to book a rapid test every few days to help ensure that essential services are as safe as possible.
Around one in three people with coronavirus do not show symptoms, which means you could be spreading the virus to loved ones, co-workers and into the community without realising.
To book a test, please visit www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/rapidtest – get results in 45 minutes. You will find that Wheathampstead has now been added as a location option. Normally appointments must be booked 7 days in advance, however, bookings for Wheathampstead will be accepted given the last minute arrival of this testing centre. At present, we are unsure when the mobile testing unit will return to Wheathampstead, so please keep an eye on both ours and the county council’s websites and social media for updates.
If you have symptoms of coronavirus you cannot have a rapid test – instead please book a standard PCR test at www.gov.uk/coronavirus
